It’s all time the best practice when you develop a mobile application, you should put some extra efforts to test that application. It’s relatively easy to moderate the application for speed, errors, and performance in the environment of development. However, it’s not a good job when you perform critical testing objects after the launch of the application in Play Store.
Yes, it’s universal fact in the technical scenario that none of the testing hardware works on the testing environment because they need live momentum in the real mobile operative system.
Testing a mobile application is the critical element of mobile application development firm because it shows the perfect behavior and the performance of an application before it delivers to users on the Internet. Hence, companies take always extra exertions in testing mode to make the application more accurate.
Let’s test IONIC Mobile Application in Android Mobile OS using Ubuntu.
Before we initiate this complex process, let’s take our eyes on the pre-requisite which we require in testing mode.
- JAVA Software Development Kit (Download Them from Here, If you don’t have).
- Gradle – The Latest Version 4.1
- Android Studio with Indeed Software Development Kit (SDK) Tools
Okay, let’s get into it!
Phase 1 – Install Java
Enter the following command to install JDK 8 on your machine.
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
In order to confirm installation, run the following command
Phase 2 – Download Gradle Package – The Open Source to Test Software Performance
Enter the following command to download Gradle on your machine.
sudo apt-get install wget unzip
Let’s take Gradle in a real testing environment, enter the following with downloaded path.
Note: It’s good practice to check the latest version of software before we get it for testing purpose. Take a look on the latest version of Gradle from this page.
Phase 3 – Installing Gradle
Before we install a Gradle, let’s have a dedicated directory for it.
Run the following command to create directory for Gradle
Extra the series of files from the downloaded Gradle folder into the newly created directory.
sudo unzip -d /opt/gradle gradle-3.4.1-bin.zip
That’s it. Let’s verify the following installation was done properly.
Run the following command
One of the critical parts of this IONIC application testing in Android on Ubuntu was installing Gradle and now, it’s done completely.
Phase 4 – Android SDK Tools
Once you complete the download process of Android SDK on your computer, you need to set a path for Android Home. To set a path, you need to enter below command.
export ANDROID_HOME=$HOME/your sdk path
Let’s start with testing and to initiate it, we need to enable USB debugging and Developer Mode between these two interacting devices.
